for those reckless actions. stoord & poors estimates the shutdown cost our economy $24 illion, and the peterson institute said bipartisanship has cost our country 900,000 jobs since the 2010 elections. i hope every member of this committee, democrats and republicans alike, will put away the threats of future shutdowns and default and focus our efforts to help our economy grow. the house and republican and senate democratic budgets before us represent very different visions for the future of the country. we're not going to be able to bridge all those differences, but i hope we can make some progress, and that will require tough compromises. it is also important to be honest with the public about the nature of our differences, because to govern is to choose, and our budgets reflect different choices. we need to reduce the long-term deficit in a balanced way. it provides for vital investments to ensure america remains the world's economic powerhouse. we aloe indicate resources to -- allocate resources to put people to work, modernizing our bridges and our ports and other infrastr

that this body could do for the american people, for the economy and for the taxpayers. tomorrow, the senate budget conference that was established as part of this recent agreement that was made over reopening the government and extending the debt limit will meet. this will be the first public meeting of the group. we have had some other meetings, including one i just had with some of the members of that group, but this is the first opportunity for us to meet as house members, senate members, republicans and democrats in this budget conference. and it couldn't come soon enough. the opportunity we have with this group is that in the wake of what happened at the beginning of this month, which was again a government shutdown and then a debt limit debate and then pushing right up against the debt limit, the opportunity we have now is to finally deal with this issue of government shutdowns and to deal with the underlying problem of what we're spending that forces us to extend the debt limit time and time again. so let's start with the government shutdowns. the agreement that was agreed to opened

. the shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give this guy a honeymoon. they didn't give him nothing. they started going after him from the beginning. >> no. and they haven't learned their lesson. they just got their hat handed to them with their government shutdown and the debt ceiling, but they're going to keep this up. it's an ideological war they're fighting where these tea party members, they think the government is bad. not only do they think that obama's government is bad, any government is bad. so they want government to fail. which is a pretty outrageous thing. imagine when the iraq war was getting underway if democrat who is opposed the war and weren't crazy about george w. bush to begin with began denying troops body armor or denying them armored vehicles or things like that. that's the equivalent to what republicans are doing to the health care bill with not expanding med
the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note that going into this debate they say there should be more cuts. there's been $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction. $600 billion of that has been from the expiration of the high-end bush tax cuts. $600 billion. $1.8 trillion have come from cuts. there's hardly any other place to go but nonetheless subject every federal dollar to scrutiny. cut where you can cut if it's d duplicative or whatever. do not say we're going to give tax breaks to the wealthy while it makes seniors may more for medicare as it voucherizes medicare. >> do you think in this process there'll be some flexibility on the sequester? i know there have been some who want to just do away with sequester. senator joe manchin and others are looking at can we have more flexibility. what's your position on that? >> if we have sequester we have to have the flexibility. and what senator manchin is putting forth is a reasonable proposal. but we would rather do away with sequestration. because it just cuts so muc
that provide for this country. if it was not for the mines and miners we would not have the economy or the country we have. we would not be the best economy in the world. they gave us dependable and affordable energy. the thing i have a hard time with is this fighting and making people understand that coal is still part of the mix. the largest part of our energy mix. do not make it more difficult. help me find the technology that would continue to clean up the environment. would've done more in the last two decades than ever before in the history. we can even do more. we like to think we have a partner. in west virginia, we think our government is working against us. i think they are, too. i am trying to get every door open that i can work with. i'm not going to sit back and not to let them know what we do and how hard we do and how much energy we provide for this country. and some the best coal in the world comes from west virginia. we do not mind heavy lifting. we will do the heavy lifting. we would like for somebody to recognize and appreciate. >> based on all of that, you're bee

of the person you damaged. i mean, cruz is getting it both ways. screw up the economy, kill public confidence, then say there's a lack of confidence and the economy's not growing as it could so i'm going to bring economic growth. >> chris, i think there's some validity to that based on the numbers. that same study you were talking about estimated that job growth was diminished by at least 60,000 jobs a month over the last few months. and that's going to continue on into next year. it's not like it's stopped because government is back in operation. it will be a continuing ripple effect over the next year. and as you point out, this whole scenario could start up again in january and february further zapping consumer confidence. that's 2/3 of the economy is consumer spending. it's one reason why there's a growing angry gulf between tea party republicans such as ted cruz and the business community which has been shut out to some extent that wants its way back in here before things get out of hand. >> you know, i was skeptical, david -- i'll get back to you on this howard. there's cruz out there w
, shattering the economy all across the country in all 50 states. >> of course there are death panels. that's just one aspect of this atrocious unaffordable, cumbersome, evil policy of obama's, and that is obama care. >> you know, obama care is really, i think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. and in a way it is slavery, in a way. >> sure. anyway, welcome back to "hardball." as you saw in that clip, some of the right have been so blind by their hatred. cruz said it's become like sugar, it's become addictive. they're frayed of it be popular. they also determined that the health care plan won't bankrupt people when they get sick. i want to again with this. it's hard to keep track of all the distortions out there. but let's take a look at some of the most overrepeated charges against the affordable care act. the first is that you'll lose your current coverage. they won't be able to piddle those junk plans that they had before. or they cap your benefits at incredibly low level, and those are gone. those weren't good policies any way. and the second one is that the

professor craig wilder reveals how the slave economy and higher education grew up together. that "the american campus to it as a silent monument to slavery." welcome to democracy now! talk about america's most elite universities. what relation do they have to slavery? >> i think there are multiple relationships. the first and probably most provocative is the relationship to the slave trade itself. in the middle of the 18th century, from 1746 to 1759, fewer than 25 years, the number of colleges in the british colonies triples from 3 to 9. it triples and that 25- yearperiod which coincides with the height of the slave trade. it is precisely the rise in the atlantic economy based on the african slave trade that allows for this fantastic articulation of new growth of the institutional infrastructure. >> let's talk specifically about particular universities. you do look at some universities in the south, but also in the deep north. harvard. >> it is a very northern story. when you think about the colonial world, until the american revolution, there's actually only one college in the south,

"getting people in and crucial. i know that's why it's so deeply upsetting that the government just dropped the ball on getting the website launched, but the answer is double down and get it fixed." a lot of focus here on the website, but today indicates that the substance could be a big problem. >> yeah. i think it is a problem when you have the president saying you can keep your plan if you like it. if he had said you can sort of keep your plan for double the cost, i don't think that very many people would have been excited about this. you need to actually tell people what you're going to do. grant it it is a minority. 14 million
